ADDISON COUNTY — On the evening of June 28, a black bear demolished a steel fence at Paul and Kristin Francoeur’s home on Shackett Road in Leicester, following the scent of grain that had been freshly laid out for the Francoeurs’ alpacas.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury voters will head to the polls on Tuesday, July 13, to cast ballots on a $3 million, 20-year bond to chip away at a mounting backlog of needed repairs to the town’s water system infrastructure.

This has meant that other projects have had to be delayed.

STARKSBORO — A resident in Starksboro is realizing that, when it comes to Vermont utility companies, not all solar projects are created equal.
